I recently saw one, fully farkled, and it looked like quite the machine! The DRZ400 is also has a 2" taller seat height, a bonus to myself at 6'6"

Go half way down the page to "Controls" and look at lowered foot pegs if you're trying to unfold your legs a little. I also added some "highway" pegs out in front of the skid plate to stretch out on. That's really what is needed in my opinion.

There is NO PERFECT bike for what we do. The good news is most of the cures have already been done for us. We just have to buy and bolt them on.

Take care,
